from eat.shop rhode island:
"I got lost in Newport looking for a store and stumbled into Alloy. Which turned out to be quite possibly my best-ever serendipitous find. Inside the narrow, spare shop, you'll discover work by eight or ten designers, mostly RISD graduates. Each tall case features deeply original work gleaming in silvers and golds but also featuring enamels, wools and other fun materials. Don't wait to get lost to find it yourself. It's on Spring Street. Go."
